The ZED-10FX is an amazing little desk for small band mixing. It is portable for carrying to the gig, and can be used for recording live or in the studio. It comes with configurable USB audio in/out making it easy to capture stereo recordings.
Getting audio to and from a computer easily is now a common requirement for live sound and music production. Just plug in a USB lead to your ZED, select the USB routing on the mixer and the device on your computer to receive CD quality audio to and from your PC or Mac.
The ZED-10 features a responsive 3-band, swept mid frequency EQ design which utilizes MusiQ – with optimized slope (or Q factor) for equalizing individual instruments and essential selection of 16 time-delay effects, designed for those who don’t want to carry around an effects unit with their gear but still want great quality FX at their gigs and recordings. ZED effects are easily controlled using 3 buttons with 9 display LEDs. For example, the ideal delay time can be quickly tapped-in, or the perfect amount of reverb on the lead vocal can be dialed-in.
The ZED-10 pre-amps are similar in design to the MixWizard range of mixers, but inputs 3 and 4 have a high impedance jack input capable of taking either a normal line level or a low level input from a guitar pickup. These newly designed inputs have been crafted with the aim of replicating the sound of a classic guitar or instrument tube pre-amp in a combo or head amp.
A Class A FET (field effect transistor) circuit powered from 48V is employed to give the valve-like gain stage. There is a gain “Boost” switch associated with the guitar inputs which boosts gain by 26dB to cater for instruments with very low level outputs and the overdrive characteristics of the guitar inputs are very similar to a valve (tube) circuit, being asymmetric and soft. All this makes for a wonderfully natural sound to be reproduced from the instrument, full of warmth and character.
